Sunday Major League Soccer action from Mercedes-Benz Stadium, as Atlanta take on Red Bulls.

Eighth placed Red Bulls will travel to Mercedes-Benz Stadium, hopeful of rampage, as they face tenth placed Atlanta.

With the Major League Soccer season well into its stride, Atlanta United have managed to gain 11 points so far, going into this game

This match gives Gabriel Heinze’s Atlanta 90 minutes to get their season back on track. Their last outing resulted in a 1-0 loss to New York, with a 2-2 draw against Philadelphia Union before that. Only a positive result will be good enough.

A draw statistic of four in six meetings is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Gabriel Heinze’s men wishes for ultimately. They currently sit in tenth place, with a total of 11 points having won two meetings, drawn five fixtures, and lost two games.

When Atlanta host Red Bulls, they will do so on the back of two victories and two darts on their own ground.

A win in this fixture would take Atlanta United’s points to 14 in the League.

New York Red Bulls arrive at this meeting with 12 points

Returning to match-winning form, following a defeat is always a tough challenge, but that is what Red Bulls need now, after their loss to New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium.

Red Bulls have now lost five of their last nine games, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Gerhard Struber. They currently stand eighth in the League, with 12 points having won four matches and lost five fixtures.

Playing away from home, Red Bulls have lost four meetings.

New York Red Bulls will have 15 points if they manage to secure a victory.

The recent form between these two sides has seen Red Bulls with a greater number of wins. In the last 10 meetings, they have enjoyed seven victories, to Atlanta’s one win. Also, Red Bulls have left Atlanta with a win on seven out of 10 games. October 2020 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and New York Red Bulls took all three points winning 0-1.
